Long range weather forecast
This long range forecast for the UK is updated once a month. Using the latest long range data from the NCEP and then run through custom software here at Netweather it is on the cutting edge of technology for long range weather forecasting. It is important to bear in mind that forecasting at this range is still in its infancy so can effectively be considered experimental.
The End Of Spring And Into Summer
Updated April 14th 2014
Spring has bought a lot of settled weather across a good deal of the UK, will that trend continue and how is Summer 2014 shaping up?
Average isn't so bad, right? Well May is forecast to be a pretty average month with rainfall close to the seasonal norm, perhaps edging towards being a little wetter than average locally. In terms of temperatures, much of England and Wales is forecast to be close to normal overall, potentially slightly warmer than average for Scotland and Northern Ireland though.
June could prove to be a tricky month to nail down with no really clear signals from the expected pressure pattern, so low confidence at this stage. Currently with a weak low pressure anomaly close to the south of the UK, the CFS forecasting model is suggesting a wetter than average month is likely for a good deal of England and Wales with Scotland and Northern Ireland closer to normal. Temperatures countrywide are forecast to be near to, or a slightly warmer than the long term average.
June Air Pressure
As always at this range confidence falls away further, but at this stage with higher than average pressure forecast across the British Isles the outlook is for a generally drier and warmer month than average.

The long range weather forecast displayed on this page is based on data from the Climate Forecast System from the NCEP (USA), run out to 9 months in advance and are updated once a month. The raw data is sent daily to Netweather, our systems then average and further process that data to produce the forecast you see below. The average figures you see on the forecast are not the standard 1971 to 2000 figures you may often see, instead they are rolling averages, currently from the period 1980-2008.
